Message to clients

I know the process of starting therapy can be challenging and somewhat awkward. This includes finding a therapist that you feel is a good fit. I'm available for an initial phone call or video chat to help you navigate this important step and give you a sense of my style and what to expect. Throughout our time together we will try to remain curious as we understand your particular concerns and address any factors contributing to the challenges you face. Importantly, we will also identify and utilize your unique talents, strengths, and abilities to support your work during therapy and help you manage your life in the future.
